Re: who's your inner european?
Your Inner European is Dutch!
Open minded and tolerant.
You're up for just about anything.
WTF? Under the political issues category, I said immigration! How on earth is that tolerant and open-minded? The Dutch do have some close cultural links to Britain and I like their players... but really, I'm not a fan of smoking weed, legalised brothels, tulips or any of the other lazy cliches associated with Holland. Do the Dutch like eating pasta and visiting sites of historical interest while on holiday? That's what I picked.

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.
Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?
ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.
